But once and again, not everyone recognizes it for what it is. Some think ts fashionable and chic. And I sincerely doubt that "all" the psychiatrists and psychologists consider same sex sex as normal. They often have to say what people want to hear just to be PC. Like a politician. I'm not saddled with that burden. I can actually use the truth. Toodles.

I agree with some of your post. Most folks are good, decent, caring people. I don't hate G/L folks. I feel sorry for their plight and their condition. It must be a tremendous weight to bear. That doesn't make me a hater. Regardless, the Boy Scouts should seriously consider this issue. Sure, live and let live. Homosexuality won't be ended. Just no to the tent sharing and weenie roasting with straight, young, impressionable kids. It may limit the number of fish in the pond, but the line needs to be drawn. When they are mature, then they should be allowed to do as they wish. That isn't hating. And I know the difference.

It's not a matter of being "fashionable" or "chic," it's simply a fact of life that some people's sexual orientations are opposite from yours. It's not a choice! Heterosexuals get turned on be seeing attractive members of their own sex, the same as you get turned on by seeming attractive members of the opposite sex. I say "attractive" because obviously, we can't be turned on by everyone. People -- homo and hetero -- have their own particular tastes when it comes to what they find appealing.

Okay. I'll agree with this. It isn't my intent to bash anyone, even if I have done that. I'm concerned about kids. It's as I stated before with regards to gardens, not everything needs to be mixed up in order to produce a wonderful finished product.

Does this include child molesters? Because soon they will band together and have their rights also. The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect has records of 55,399 cases of children being sexually molested in one year.

Judging by their extensive pervert files, the Boy Scouts has a sad history of allowing child molesters as part of their organization, until caught anyways, as long as they were openly heterosexual.

Nobody has the "right" to abuse or molest a child. Get real.

There is no such thing as openly heterosexual you dolt! We are all born heterosexual you dork. Some of us have more 'tendencies' than others toward any given frailties in life. A man having intercourse with a male and female young or old has given into bisexual tendencies. As soon as any person commits any sexual act that deviates away from a consensual male/female companionship then they are engaging in a form of vice, excess, or perversion. I am sick and tired of going over this.

It's a shame it had to make news, this should have never had been a problem to start with. I have gay friends and I'd trust them with my son long before many of the "straight" immature guys people see fit to look over children. You do realize many of the gay/ lesbian community have children to? They do have a right to participate in all their children's activities to. Otherwise stfu if you want to blame parents for never being involved. You can't have it all your way
your a horrible parent and nasty! Go to hell with him

Gay and straight people marry adults; not kids
.
As long as you (and the Boy Scouts) continue to blame gay people (who are not even in the scouts); you're enabling the sociopathic pedophiles who RUN the Scouts to continue molesting children freely
.
*Profile of the Sociopath*
++++++++++
.
Glibness and Superficial Charm
.
Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.
.
Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."
.
Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.
.
Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.
.
Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.
.
Incapacity for Love
.
Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.
.
Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.
.
Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.
.
Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.
.
Irresponsibility/Unreliability
Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.
.
Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.
.
Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.
.
Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

I think you have an issue with straights. I also think you have an agenda to control and contaminate the very young. You're manipulative and self destructive as well.
Not everybody is G/L. Get over it.

You can go over it all you want, but you're not the authority. Most gay people will say that they knew they were gay as soon as they were cognizant of any feelings toward the same sex. Doesn't meant that they actually had sex at this young age, but they knew they were attracted to the same sex, similar to having a schoolboy crush on someone. These feelings didn't change during puberty.

Mister, I know how to read -- I can also write. As far as my having an issue with straights, if YOU know how to read, you'd know I am straight, since I mentioned it in an earlier post.

But thanks for the laugh.

Virtually unproven. Acting upon tendencies has been accommodated here in America quite nicely. We all pay the price. A physical and social disease. A health crisis.
